Last week we learned that Maja is the missing princess of Islak, which means her brother is the missing prince. Their parents were both killed when Morgyt the Wolf attacked the royal fortress city. Morgyt has been looking for Maja ever since, and the attack on Lundrskag (village we're in) may have been an attempt at finding her. Maja also had some thoughts about this Jorgen fellow from Hilvard. On to this week's snippet! We begin with Jorgen speaking.
The few men gathered spoke to each other in hushed tones. One elderly man, with a bandaged arm called out. "And what is it you require in return?"
Jorgen acknowledged the man with a curt nod. "Anything you can recall about Morgyt's men, where they attacked from, where they planned to go next, anything at all that was noticed might be of use to me."
That's my ten sentences. The rest of the scene, which is also the rest of the chapter is below. Also...my last blog post was about my adventures in using AI tech for character art, and features Jorgen, Maja, and other characters from this novel. Thank you for visiting.
"Why?" another man ventured. "The quarrel is between us and Morgyt. It does not involve you."
"No, it does not." Jorgen agreed. "But Morgyt has plagued my lands, and my people, and I have vowed to stop him. Help me or not, as you wish. Accept my offer or not. But be quick about your decision. My men and I leave on the morrow at dawn."
The foreigners strode out of the clearing, leaving the village folk to talk the matter over.
